Hi Cheryl - I'm glad you're going to get this checked out. An inverted nipple can indeed be a symptom of breast cancer. it can also be a symptom of other things; or it could just be your body doing its own thing. You've made the right move; and on Wednesday, you'll get some answers to your questions. Best of luck to you - PJH

Yes, it could be a symptom, so it is so good you are getting it checked out.  You'll get your answers.  I was diagnosed 18 months ago with breast cancer, also have 2 small kids, they were 9 months and 3 years at the time.  If you do have to deal with this, there are resources I would be happy to share with you. Best of luck.
